    Hey guys,
    I just found a few salt boxes. $60 each. They measure L31 W23 H32. They are grey, and I'm just wondering what sort of paint would I need to use to paint them, and to ensure the paint won't come off in the winter elements?
    Also, is $60 ea. a good deal?

    Thanks alot

    here are the prices i just got for some snow ex boxes i was going to use for calcium at the shopping centers i do
    #550...about 500 lbs ......299.00
    #1100 .......399.00
    #1800 about 1750 lbs......499.00
    i didn't realize from the pics that the boxes were this big (and expensive, it's just plastic) so i'm going to make my own,

    adam...these are plastic, correct? i originally thought they were metal and you wanted them painted..are you just wanting a custom look to the plastic? paint might not stick so well in a harsh environment.could the boxes have been "layed up" with the color in the palstic instead of painted?

    Krylon fusion would work to paint them.
